We know that there will be two versions of the Apple iPad, the one with Wi-Fi and the other with Wi-Fi and 3G. For those who do not want to pay the extra for 3G — they had hoped to use tethering as an option — Steve Jobs has since dismissed this feature. So you will not be able to tether the iPad to the iPhone, not even the upcoming 4G version.
ITProPortal learned from Apple Insider that an Apple user in Sweden had emailed Jobs about the possibility of tethering the iPad to the iPhone — the returned email denied the possibility of tethering. This is certainly bad news for those who did not want to pay the extra for the 3G version of the tablet — seems like Apple have forced more people into the more expensive version.
Apple have never been fans of tethering — just think back to 2008 when a
Tethering application was remove from the App Store. Both Apple and AT&T have always been silent about this feature, and for good reason — money.
Are you disappointed that the iPad will not be able to tether to the iPhone?
